Private schools are the worst! My teacher did the same kind of thing after I came back to school after having cancer. All we did was watch videos about kids with cancer. Don't ever stay in school just to be abused by teachers. Homeschooling really has alot more benefits.

@ anime lover: i feel so bad for u. if ur friends cant accept u, then they werent really ur friends at all. be proud of who you r, and surround urself with people that accept u for who u r!

I feel the same way...once people figure out that I am Muslim and I don't celebrate Christmas, they stop hanging out with me and the teachers start acting funny...

Christmas is a nationally recognized holiday. If Jewish people choose not to celebrate it than that's their choice. But that doesn't mean we need to incorporate their holidays into our lives. Christmas is a religious holiday but it's also a national holiday so we shouldn't feel pressured to recognize their holiday if we're not Jewish. Just proving a point! No offense intended to you Jewish people out there!

I am so glad I am not alone! I moved last year and this time of year is always super awkward! We played holiday jeopardy and my team won! Do you know why? Cause the final jeopardy question was "what is the story of hanukah?" and i was the only one who knew it! Also, yesterday a kid came up to me and asked me if I spoke fluent hebrew! Sometimes kids make slightly offensive jokes by muttering them cause they think I can't hear, its really rude...

Hey, I was born half Jewish so we celebrate both x-mas and hanukkah, Even though I only believe in Judaism. I am one of 16 Jews/ 2,000 evryone else in my school. I have always had the same issue, I've even been persuaded into giving one to many hanukkah presentations. I did what the writer of the article says to do go all out, however it lead to a lot of bullying. Just talk to your teach.

Hey, just pull your teacher aside and tell him that you don't like it....though that may just make him proclaim really loudly that he wasn't trying to make you embarrassed,(Which will make you more embarrassed and yeah ALL teacher do that). Or just wait for Christmas to pass when it will all blow over.

same here. because im jewish, people make all these racist jokes about it. there are some other jews in my class but its embarrassing when people say mean things about jews. We should be treated EQUALLY.

I'm Home-schooled, so I don't really get singled out at school! lol I do all my school work by myself and my mom only helps and checks stuff over when she needs to so yeah its pretty nice. Sometimes is feels weird when other people talk about how awful their school is and then a friend who goes to that school thinks its awesome. lol Home-schooling is pretty fun tho sometimes because I spend half the time as most schools do the only downside is that when my friends are in school I get bored.

I am the the only Jewish in the whole school! There are one thousand kids in my public school! My grandmother basically hates my mom and my whole family! My friends always go off on me! Don't worry! At least you have friends right?
